After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

For a dubbel, it was winey, but with a creamy texture and a fine bubbled head. A nice fruity/doughy mix, with flavors of berries, red grapes, dark sweet raisin bread, and cream. There was a bit of acidity and a lingering sourness at the end, that try as I might, did not grow on me. Still, a nice dubbel.

Fruit and malt in the nose, hazy ruby, with a small toffe ehead. Flavour is red plums, almonds and caramel. Very well balanced, complex, nicely bitter. Fine example! Thanks again mds.

bottle. brown-copper body with a soapy off-white head. nice perfumey malt aroma with notes of chocolate, raisins, and yeast. the flavour is sweet malt and is moderately complex while still being light on the palate. mild soapy bitterness in the finish. nice.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Hazy dark amber colored with a frothy off-white head. Dominating yeast and spice aroma, herby and chocolaty tones. Extremely herby flavor, typical for ’t IJ, probably from the yeast. Notes of malt, toffee and spices. Foamy soft mouthfeel.

hotstuff (4389) - Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Bottle. Ivory large sized head that was mostly lasting, fine-small sized bubbles, good amount of lacing, carbonated, cloudy, and a reddish brown hue. Nose was malty, caramel and sweet and mimicked in the flavor. Very tasty and quaffable. Smooth palate. Medium body. Truly enjoyed this brew and definitely would like to have this one again. Try it if you have the chance.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark brown and cloudy with a neat, light brown head. Very aromatic and sweetish with weak notes of burned malt. Some notes of chocolate. A delicious and very typical Abbey Dubbel. 240504

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2005
Bottle: Lovely ruby dark amber colour, with a lasting beige head. Fruity aroma, with some plum and citrus notes. Spice there too. Flavour starts a little sweet, but remains quite dry all the way through. Mildly spicy notes evident, along with some caramel and dark fruit notes. Alcohol well disguised. Not bad.

TBone (13367) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2005
Bottled (BB 07/2006)
Dark nut brown, good creamy off-white head. Aroma is lemony, a bit fruity. Medium-bodied. Some roasted malts underlying. Not sweet, but a bit sticky mouthfeel. Dark dubbel, but not really dark in the taste. Easty to drink, does not show alcohol much.
